The folks at Hard Bar have used the best organic ingredients they could find. They've put the time and effort into making sure their bars taste great. So they don't need colourings, preservatives or flavourings. Just proper food squashed up, wrapped and ready to power adventures.

Centurion Review: Hard Bars are everything we've been looking for in a nutrition product. Made with a simple number of wholesome ingredients. Packing 200 Calories (22-32g carbs), weighing only 50 grams, small in size and supremely tasty they fit the trail and ultra runners requirements down to a tee. The fact that they are ethically sourced and produced by a small independent company run by people who love running and the mountains makes this even better. Four different flavours to choose from. For full details see below.

The Story

Hard Bar started from a need for better energy. Headaches and sore teeth from a season of eating bars full of processed sugar wasn’t a sustainable way to go on. From a falling to pieces kitchen in Chamonix, crushing ingredients with ice axe hammers, we’re slowly learning, growing and trying to do the right thing. Take the business of being a good business seriously. Do the right thing. Not to take ourselves too seriously. Keep getting out there and having adventures with our friends. We started selling homemade bars, wrapped in tin foil, to our friends, because they asked us to and we figured we might be able to raise a bit of cash for a good cause along the way. That’s what we’re still doing.

GINGERBREAD

Organic | Ethical | Vegan Friendly

We pay homage to Morgan’s guilty pleasure, the Swedish Christmas classic, Peppakkakor. For those not brought up with Scandinavian legends like this, try it. The cloves come from Indonesia. At first we were told we’d have to order enough for ten billion bars, which seemed a little cocky for our first order. It needed a lot of perseverance in the paperwork department, but we’re very glad we pushed on.

Ingredients (Allergens in bold):
Dates (53%), Oats (36%), Agave Syrup (8%), Sunflower Oil (2%), Ground Ginger (0.8%), Cinnamon Powder (0.5%), Clove Powder (0.1%).

Nutrition (per 50g bar):

SWEDISH APPLE PIE

Organic | Fairtrade | Vegan Friendly

Tastes great, and has a remarkable social conscience. Mark’s current favourite. We’re delighted that every bar helps farmers in the Gilgit. A disputed area in Northern Pakistan, Gilgit is a launch point for expeditions to K2 and Broad Peak amongst other enormous Himalayan giants. The apples we use come from a co-operative of growers there, are solar dried, and shipped to our factory slowly, to minimise the carbon footprint of the transport.

Apple (32%), Dates, OatsCashew Nuts, Apple Juice Concentrate (5%), Cinnamon Powder.

ORANGE AND COCOA

Organic | Fairtrade | Vegan Friendly

For our Orange & Cocoa Hard Bar, think of the classic Terry's Chocolate Orange. We got the combination so spot on you wouldn't believe it and it's packed full of natural goodies to keep you powered up in the hills. You have to try it to believe it (but of course we'd say that).

COFFEE

Organic | Ethical | Vegan Friendly

Or maybe even Espresso? Our coffee bar adds that extra boost to your mission. And as usual all the ingredients are Organic. We’re struggling to source sunflower seeds and hazelnuts that are ‘Dual cert’. i.e. Fairtrade and organic. When we do find some, and they pass the quality test, we’ll start using them.

Ingredients (Allergens in bold):
Dates , Sunflower Seeds, AlmondsHazelnuts, Cocoa Powder, Ground Coffee (5%), Agave Syrup.
